Occasionally the Internet brings us something so fresh and impressive that we just have to shake our heads and say, “Damn, there are some creative MFers out there.” Kung Fury is the perfect example of that.
This Kickstarter-funded 31-minute Swedish martial arts-comedy film is pretty spectacular. Spoofing 80s action movies and much more, it’s at once perfect for the instant gratification world of today and the nostalgia-loving 80s kids/teens who will undoubtedly swoon over the endlessly creative gags and spot-on references. Any movie that features the line, “Before I could pull the trigger, I was hit by lightning and bitten by a cobra,” is a classic in our book. The picture even occasionally gets warped before someone adjusts the tracking, VCR-style. Writer, director, and David Sandberg deserves a ton of credit. Go check it out now.
